Rare opportunity to own a very original matching numbered 1947 Triumph Roadster. Plenty of documents and service history dating back from the original build date.
A very solid. rust free example. Mechanically perfect. It wouldn't take a great deal of time or money to make this car concourse.

FOR SALE: A lovely Triumph Roadster. unabused and ready to use.

Driver and passenger wing mirrors. Oil pressure gauge. Water temperature gauge. Crank handle. Column gear shift. Tyre pump. Dash Clock. Dickey Seat.

This Roadster is finished in an incredibly smart coat of Burgundy red. This looks great against the large front chrome grill and on the wide wing extensions. The paint work looks clean and smart from a distance however on close inspection it shows more of an aged patina with some areas that could be tidied up. All the chrome work is in good condition and the car has a lovely classic feel.

The interior is in fine fettle with all the wood work clean and tidy. The large leather bench seat and door cards are in excellent condition with no rips or tears. The boot plays host to the Dickey seats. the operation to open this compartment is simple and straight forward however getting in via the step on the rear bumper is a little more tricky. The hood is in good condition and keeps the worst of the weather out.

The four cylinder engine fires up with ease and runs beautifullyt. The column gear shift takes a while to get used to but with some gentle maneuvering the car slots into gear nicely.

The tyres are in great condition.

The original Triumph 1800 Instruction book is present along with an updated Drivers instruction book produced by the Triumph Roadster Club. The present owner has had the car for over 18 years and the car has only ever had 4 other owners in its 65 year life.
